    Course Content

    This course offers the options of a three-year BA (Hons) degree, a four year MDes or a four year BA (Hons) degree that includes the third year ‘Professional Enhancement’.
    On the first year of the course you will learn 2D and 3D techniques for generating, developing and communicating innovative product design ideas and concepts using manual and digital media supported by historical, environmental and technological contextual studies.

    During the second year you will focus on your own particular strengths and interests. Learning will involve branding and design for different market places, and you will learn how to evaluate your work in relation to identified objectives.

    The Professional Enhancement Year; the third year of the four-year degree, involves entry to a national or international competition and involvement in collaborative projects with industry. There are opportunities to secure placements in industry, or to study abroad in an international exchange placement programme.

    The final year of your three or four year BA(Hons) may include entry to a national design competition, while the final year for the MDes qualification (4th year) includes research and design management modules. Both BA (Hons) and MDes qualifications conclude with a major design project. At the end of their degree students are expected to exhibit in our prestigious Degree Show.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
